MP references Derry Girls during Troubles legacy debate in Commons
An MP reference Derry Girls while discussing the Troubles in the House of Commons.
Julian Smith, who used to be the minister for Northern Ireland, referenced the "brilliant" finale which aired last week and showcased the signing of the Good Friday Agreement in 1998.
He said: “The lead character Erin’s monologue on coming of age in Northern Ireland, was set to clips of Bloody Sunday and more importantly David Cameron’s apology. A clear modern reflection of the importance of that acknowledgement of the past.
Cameron made a speech in 2010 apologising for Bloody Sunday, when British soldiers shot and killed 13 civil rights protestors in Londonderry in 1972.
He added: "I urge the Government to look at again at the independence and investigatory powers of this body to ensure that it can guarantee victims a full and thorough investigation of their case that is legally compliant.
